The Largest Man-Made Forest in the World

Johannesburg has over 10 million trees and is touted as having the world's largest man-made forest, though that claim is a bit misleading. In reality, Johannesburg isn't home to a forest in the traditional sense of the word, but it is one of the most wooded cities in the world, with a variety of trees planted throughout the city. One of the most notable are the jaracandas. Imported from South America in the late 1800s, jacarandas have become a favorite sight among locals as their purple blooms highlight the arrival of the spring and summer seasons. Be sure to take a slow stroll along the jacaranda-lined sidewalks of Johannesburg and Pretoria and take in their stunning color and fragrance. Once you're done taking in the scenery you can head out and grab something to eat at any of the many restaurants located in the vicinity or you can go party the night away!
